In The Chosen , Rashel's bare hand brushes Quinn's, and they both receive a shivering jolt. When this occurs, their minds are forcibly opened to each other and each can explore the other's memories, thoughts, and feelings freely.

Martin H. Greenberg

In Huntress , it is revealed that memories can be blocked, but any lapse in concentration or excessive time in a soulmate's mind will remove the blockages. The vampires of Night World are different from conventional literature as well as those established in The Vampire Diaries novels. The main difference being the two distinctions of blood drinkers: the Lamia - pureblood or "born vampires" - and the "made vampires" who were turned. They age and can eat food as well as reproduce, but can suspend their aging process at will and become immortal.

However, if they resume aging after a significant number of years, they will immediately age to match their "true" age. Made vampires are those created through a blood exchange between a human and either a lamia or another made vampire. Made vampires are infertile, unaging, and can only drink blood. Because older adults cannot survive the transition, made vampires are quite youthful in appearance.

If a made vampire in transition does not receive enough blood from their sire while being turned, they will resurrect as a ravenous ghoul upon their imminent death. These mindless creatures are driven only by their compulsion to hunt and feed on the flesh and blood of the living. All vampires possess supernatural powers of strength and speed as well as potentially developing telepathic abilities. Sunlight weakens them, but will not kill them. Their bloodlust is rooted not in hunger but in their need to breathe as their own blood cells cannot carry oxygen.

Although they do possess great healing abilities as well as being impervious to all diseases and poisons, vampires can be killed by fire or a wooden stake through the heart.

They cannot shapeshift into bats or be harmed by crucifixes or garlic and can enter without being invited. The original vampire was a powerful witch named Maya. Obsessed with eternal youth, she used her magics to become the first immortal by drinking the blood of infants. Her son, Red Fern, is the ancestor of the lamia. The first made vampire was a boy from Maya's tribe named Thierry. As she is the purest vampire in existence, Maya possesses abilities unknown to her descendants. This includes the ability to shapeshift into a large batlike creature similar to many fictional vampires.

She also retains her ability to access magical forces and practice witchcraft. Despite their genealogical roots in witchcraft, vampire society is patriarchal. Lamia of the Redfern family possess a greater concentration of witch blood and are thus able to tap into the same forces as their foremother to perform a "kinship ceremony" for familial strengthening. The symbol for the lamia is not depicted in the books. Lamia such as James Rasmussen are known to carry the image of a black iris - which is the symbol for the Black Iris Club, a popular night club for the denizens of the Night World.

The symbol for made vampires is a black rose.

It is a cycle he is desperate to break. Thierry has dark eyes and mid-long blond hair which he wears in a ponytail. He is the leader of Circle Daybreak and plans to recruit all the Wild Powers in order to win the final battle. He was changed by Maya in the stone age because she felt she was in love with him, the same reason she repeatedly kills Thierry's soulmate through all of her lifetimes. His original name was Theorn, and he belonged to the witch tribe led by Maya's sister Hellewise. The witches of the Night World novels are largely based on the neo-pagan religion of Wicca as well as the Goddess Movement. They are a matriarchy which traces its lineage to the first tribe of sorceresses ruled by Hecate Witch-Queen and later her daughter, Hellewise Hearth-Woman.

All witches are considered "daughters of Hellewise" by virtue of having inherited her teachings.
